    Along with the Freemasons and the knights Templar, they control every government in the world. If you're into conspiracy theories that is...

    As far as I understand it, it was just an organisation in the late-1700's with a lot of highly regarded members (politicians/writers etc).

    Nowadays it is just exploited by musicians to try and create an eerie back story to their otherwise dull music.

    I'm probably wrong though, and it is infact an evil organisation headed by a bald Mike Myers who's evil plan was to kill of Tupac.

    Just silly conspiracy theories and inadequate accusations made against some celebrities (Jay-Z) of worshipping the devil. I dont know too much about it, but its a load of bull.

    Oh dear. Get ready for much arguing, abuse and insults it shudnt take long before this thread turns into a religous and philisophical battle.

    p.s. in simple terms. they are a group of people who follow a faith of enlightnmnet i.e. like any other religion. but its an underground faith and only certain people can followi i or join who happen to be people that matter in todays world.

    A conspiracy theory. They were a cult several hundred years ago, there is no such group today.

    I've read 'Angels and Demons' by Dan Brown and there's a lot of information about the Illuminati in there. From what I recall the Illuminati means 'enlightened ones' and they are an anti-religious organisation, which historically was made up of intellectuals and scientists such as Galileo. They supposedly infiltrated powerful places such as Vatican City.

    I can't remember much off the top of my head, but on Dan Brown's website there is a Question and Answer section about the book, and if you look through the 3 pages of questions (dont worry, there are only a few questions per page) many questions are about the Illuminati, and the answers you may find interesting.

    The link to that page is here: http://www.danbrown.com/#/angelsAndDemons/questions
    You know that the 'illuminati' in that book bear very little resemblance to the real life thing, right?

    OP, there is a lot of conspiracy around this whole thing, but there's a secret source of information, for those who seek knowledge. The inducted know it from the Tomes as 'Wikipedia'.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illuminati

    Shhh, use this information wisely. I'm glad you asked on this forum, rather than having to find out about this secret repository of information on your own.

    Of course, but Dan Brown does a lot of careful research before he writes his novels and so I am assuming that most of the historical / background information in the book is true.
    Hahah, i get it, good one.

    A lot of careful research... ah, that was very well done.

    On the off chance you were serious.... no

    He made a massive thing in The Da Vinci Code of the 'beloved disciple' being Mary Magdalene, when anyone who has read John's Gospel knows that the beloved disciple is referred to by male pronouns (and this isn't a translation thing - he was referred to by male pronouns in the original texts). On top of this, the beloved disciple and mary magdalene are found in the same 'scenes' of the bible and mentioned by name specifically as separate people. E.g. In John's Gospel where Mary Magdalene tells the beloved disciple about Jesus not being in His tomb.

    So no, Brown's research is awful and if you take anything he says as being reliable, then i pity you, to be honest.

    Its an organisation that believe they are supreme and better than the general public. It could be classified as a cult as they belive in a type of God called the supreme being. Freemasons are closely linked to the illuminati and I doubt Jay-Z has much to do with them. They control most of our lives we just don;t realise e.g the news, the MET office, big oil companies etc

    reptilians from planet nibiru

    at the end of american civil war reptlian shapeshifters took over the US government
    and now control everything,

    reptilians in the shape of humans changed everything, industrial age began pollution destruction, materialism etc,

    reptilians goals are to **** up the earth as much as possible and establish a one nation state or new world order which they will control, they also like to eat humans, all the powerful people, eg obama, the royal family, the media etc are reptilian shapeshifters capable of shifting from human to lizard form, they all interbreed to keep the reptilian gene all in the family, just like the pharoahs of ancient egypt used to do (they were also lizards), princess diana for example was assasinated as she found out about the reptilian bloodline in the royal family and was going to out them but they had her executed before she could which they staged to be a car crash.

    It's a nonsense conspiracy theory usually professed by 30 year old virgins still living with their parents.

    Such people also usually go on about HAARP, the New World Order and Chemtrails.

    If spotted they can be subdued with copious amounts of aluminium foil.
